Victorinox Swiss Army Fibrox Pro 6 inch curved boning knife – semi-rigid knife
Victorinox Swiss Army Fibrox Pro 6-inch curved boning knife has a semi-rigid carbon steel knife. The curved edge allows for smooth, clean cuts close to and around the bone. Thick meat such as beef or pork requires a less flexible knife, but the slight bending of this knife allows for a delicate touch. Think best of two worlds. In my opinion, this is the best fat trim knife out there. The handle is from Fibro Pro for a non-slip grip. It is a light knife and you can work with it quite easily.

Victorinox Swiss Army cutlery 6 inch curved bonnet knife in rosewood
Victorinox Swiss Army Cutlery 6 inch curved rosewood knife resembles the other Victorinox knife on this side but is slightly different. Technically, they do the same thing, but this knife does not look as technical as the one with the plastic handle. For example, it looks better in a knife block. The pointed tip pierces light flesh. The curved edge of the knife allows for smooth, clean cuts close to and around the bone. The steel is the same European frame that Victorinox uses for all knives.
The handle is made of rosewood and triplet attached to the blade.

Side, and the cutting angle is mirror polished. The knife has very good edge retention as well as stain and rust resistance.

Only 2 to 3 inches long, a trim knife has a small, curved blade which is shaped like a bone knife. That trim knife is useful for removing excess fat where a larger knife is too large to maneuver.
